  1. 1. 7th African Petroleum ForumSession 3: Hunting Grounds & The Continent’s Oil/Gas & Economic Future Presentation by Victoria Oil & Gas (VOG) Tapping Gas Value in Cameroon 13th April 2010
  2. 2. Tapping Gas Value in Cameroon Contents o  Introduction o  VOG Corporate Snapshot o  Executive Summary o  Logbaba – Cameroon Potential o  Logbaba Discovery o  New Wells VOG Logbaba (La 105 & La 106) o  Further Exploration - Passive Seismic Overview o  Production Facilities & Pipeline o  High Impact Events o  Conclusion2
  3. 3. VOG Corporate Snapshot Background Share Structure Free Float o  Listed on AIM in July 2004 (80.79%) Noor Petroleum (5.6%) Management (6.2%) o  60% of the Logbaba gas field in Cameroon Barclays (4.36%) Hydrocarbon Tech. o  2P reserves of 104 Bcf (3.05%) o  First appraisal well completed as a Price: £0.040 producer in January Shares: 1.4bn Market Cap: £56 MM 2010 o  100% of West Med gas and VOG Trading Liquidity condensate project in 12 month Daily Trading Volume Russia o  Located close to % of Market Cap World’s largest gas field o  Prospective resources of 1.1Bnboe3 * As at close 12 April 2010
  4. 4. Executive Summary o  Victoria Oil & Gas Plc (VOG) is emerging as a significant player in natural gas production o  Logbaba gas and condensate field in Douala, Cameroon, is the only onshore gas discovery in the country o  The West Medvezhye (West Med) project in Siberia has independently estimated recoverable prospective resources of over 5 Tcf of gas o  Logbaba is poised to deliver first cash flows and profits for VOG o  Over 300 feet of gross sandstone pay in first well o  In-principal agreements signed with Industrial Customers o  First revenues from Logbaba targeted in H2 20104
  5. 5. Logbaba: First Mover Advantage o  The Logbaba field represents a unique opportunity to dominate the nascent natural gas market in Cameroon o  Competitive advantages:   The field lies beneath the major industrial city in the Central African Region   Agreements for gas off-take already signed with industrial customers in Douala   The only onshore gas discovery in the country   All facilities (drilling, processing and pipeline) will be owned by VOG   Pipeline will be the only municipal gas pipeline in sub- Saharan Africa o  Plans announced to triple Cameroon power generation capacity in the next 10 years Government priority for domestic market for next 30 years: 755 MMcf/d for electricity and 25 MMcf/d for industry
  6. 6. Cameroon: Heart of Central Africa ECCAS o  Cameroon is a member of the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS) o  Members share trade markets and currency o  Douala is the deep-water port and industrial heart of the region o  The city is the most expensive in Africa o  Major companies such as Guinness and Nestle have facilities there o  Rio Tinto Alcan have a major aluminium smelter at Edea close to Douala o  Douala handles around 95% of import/exports for Cameroon, Chad and CAR o  Logbaba is located in the6 eastern suburbs of Douala
  7. 7. Logbaba: Discovery o  Logbaba was discovered in 1950s by Elf SEREPCA o  Four wells were drilled by Elf: o  All encountered gas and condensate in multiple reservoir layers o  No gas-water contacts in any sands encountered o  Three wells tested over limited intervals with individual sands testing 10 – 20 MMcf/d per well o  In 2008, RPS Energy calculated 2P reserves of: o  Gas – 104 Bcf o  Liquids – 4 MMbbl o  NPV10 – $168 MM*7 * Attributable to VOG
  8. 8. Logbaba: Exceptional Progress Winter 2008 Spring 2009 Autumn 2009 Summer 20098
  9. 9. Logbaba: Well La-105 Drilling/Completion La-105 Drilling o  La-105 was drilled to a total depth of 2,718 m (8,920 feet) on 1 January 2010 o  Multiple gas-bearing sands with over 300 feet of gross pay were encountered between 1,836 and 2,540 m correlating to La-103 o  A 7” liner has been run and cemented o  La-105 has been completed as a production well and testing was conducted in the first quarter 20109
  10. 10. Logbaba: Well La-105 Testing o  Multiple pay zones were tested La-105 Testing over a period of two weeks at depths between 7,005 - 8,500 feet. o  Over the testing period, various zones of La-105 flowed at rates between 11 - 56 million standard cubic feet per day (MMscf/d) of natural gas and 210 - 1,000 barrels per day of condensate. Flowing wellhead pressures varied between 2,750 - 4,552 psi. o  The gas is sweet, with a high calorific value and the condensate has an API gravity10 of 47 degrees.
  11. 11. Logbaba: Well La-105 Testing continued La-105 Targets o  The test covered horizons of the Lower Logbaba formation, which had not been tested before, and the Upper Logbaba D sands. o  The Upper Logbaba A through C sands, although indicated as the best quality hydrocarbon- bearing sands encountered in the well logs, were not tested as the well indicated more than Elf La-103 Flow sufficient production capacity Test Results to meet initial gas demand of 8 MMscf/d. 1,780 to 1,789m 4.75 MMcf/d o  The Upper Logbaba A - C 2,019 to 2,038m 12.25 MMcf/d sands will be perforated and added to the completion 2,051 to 2,063m interval when required for 9.1 MMcf/d production. 2,364 to 2,378m11 12.25 MMcf/d
  12. 12. Logbaba: Well La-106 o  La-106 is being drilled from La-104 pad and is planned to twin the La-101 well at its bottom hole location o  Well spudded on schedule on 6 February 2010 o  Planned TD is 2,000 m TVDSS but will drill deeper due to good hydrocarbon potential in Lower formations o  La-101 was drilled in 1955 and blew out before being brought under control and completed o  The blow-out lasted 38 days, producing approx 0.9 Bcf o  The well was then tested at 15.5 MMcf/d o  La-106 targets the Logbaba formation sands12
  13. 13. Logbaba: Further Exploration o  90% of the block is as-yet Passive Seismic Survey unexplored o  In late 2009, a passive seismic survey was commissioned o  Passive seismic is a direct hydrocarbon indicator o  Significant new structure outside current drilling location o  Best location on the current structure is as yet undrilled o  The new accumulations lie outside the area evaluated by RPS13
  14. 14. Pipeline Route VOG plans to install and commission a gas processing facility and its own gas pipeline to the industrial customers Approx 85% of industrial market within 10km Wells 105+106 and processing facility14
  15. 15. VOG: High Impact Events o  VOG is targeting first revenues in H2-2010 o  While La-106 is drilled, La-105 was tested o  Test data and superior modern logs will be submitted to RPS for reserve re-estimation o  Installation of the facility and construction of the pipeline is expected to be completed relatively quickly once concept agreed15
  16. 16. Conclusion o  VOG can exploit competitive advantages to lead the gas market in Cameroon o  Logbaba is an existing discovery with first well confirming gas prospectivity o  Ready-made, captive market lies above the field with high barriers to entry for offshore competition o  Gas agreements in place. o  Government initiative to treble power generation in next 10 years o  VOG has the appetite for further expansion in Africa16
  17. 17. Appendix
  18. 18. Processing & Pipeline Strategy o  VOG will install and commission its own processing facility and pipeline o  Processing: o  Phase 1 will be a basic separation and dehydration process to produce sales gas and liquids Sales gas Separation & Dehydration Raw gas Process Liquids o  Phase 2 will add processing capability to extract additional Natural Gas Liquids (NGL) o  Pipeline o  A c.10km high-pressure gas pipeline will be laid underground to the industrial customers o  The initial section will only access the nearest customers to the well-site, but this covers about 85% of the market18
